Biography

Siraaj a pure soul singer, a majestic songwriter, and innovative producer has been a musical storm brewing for approximately 13 years.
Siraaj was first exposed to music by his mothers love for Soul and R&B music.
Everyday she would listen to Earth, Wind, and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Ronnie Dyson and Marvin Gaye just to name a few.
Siraaj's personal favorite was Donny Hathaway.

He was phenomenal".
While attending college at Chicago State University, Siraaj studied classical voice and music theory & composition.
As a musician Siraaj says "It is important to have an overall understanding of music and the history of the art form.
Once you've learned the history then you can create music that does its job, and that is to enrich the
lives of people of all ages, genders, and races.
Siraaj is now working on his first project, a Soul and R&B CD release entitled "Soul and the City".
When asked about the title of the release Siraaj answers
"I just want people to understand that although there are people who want to separate
soul into categories, it is essentially the same. Soul music is music that acts as
a mirror; it reflects the thoughts feelings and mood of the singer and songwriter.
Siraaj is a seasoned vocalist with the ability to change the face of soul music.
Siraaj adds "It's not that I am saying soul music needs a change, I am saying
that a new voice with a new twist on an old style should be welcomed by the industry
and the people alike.
